Need romantic/quiet ( not Charleston) Baltimore rec's

I need a recommendation for a VERY ROMANTIC AND QUIET dinner spot in Baltimore or the surrounding suburbs for next weekend. There is no limit on expense. Need a good solid American, French, or Italian place.

These places are already off my list.

Charleston ( were not impressed)
Tersiguel's ( LOVE IT but been a lot and want something new)
Prime Rib ( just went)
Antrim 1844 ( LOVE it but too far of a drive for what I need)

Any rec's?

  1. For your consideration:
    Corks in Fed Hill
    Melting Pot in Towson
    Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley
    Brasserie Tatin in Roland Park
    Milton Inn in Parkton
    Cafe Troia in Towson
    Enjoy your romantic evening!

    1. Corks in Fed Hill, Abacrombie in Mt Vernon, O Grille in H Valley, I like Libratores off of 83 near Timomiun. Maybe Black Olive

      1. Pierpoints in Fells Point is to be considered(Aliceanna Street).
        Marticks especially if you have never been there.
        Second The Black Olive(use OPEN TABLE and let them know about the occasion and any special requests).
        Brass Elephant for atmosphere but the food has gotten iffy.
        Elkridge Furnace Inn of Rte 1 in Elkridge.
        I prefer the Libratores in Westminster.
        Harrymann House in Reisterstown.
        Mia Carolina in Glyndon.

          I agree with Corks or Marticks.

        2. Interesting question. Not sure what the most romantic restaurant is in Baltimore anymore; might be worth a thread.

          Louisiana is a really romantic restaurant but I've not been there for a while so I can't vouch for food. I think Kali's Court is more romantic than Black Olive, but I like the Black Olive food better.

          Have you thought about Cinghiale? Had a really really good dinner there the other day.

          I also had a terrific meal at Tabrizi's in Harborview - that's a pretty romantic spot.

          My only other thoughts are Sotto Sopra and Chameleon Cafe. Sotto Sopra is very romantic; I've had nothing but good food there but I know some other people have a lesser opinion on this.

          Not sure how romantic or quiet Chameleon Cafe is, but the food is superb.

            Cinghiale is anything but quiet.

          2. I second the Abacrombie rec. Have a cocktail at the bar and then tuck into a quiet table in the back of the room for some deliciousness. We did our 8th anniversary there, and I was definitely googly. (The top-notch dirty martini and wine flight may have added to the googly factor....)

            I was Sotto Sopra for Restaurant Week last year and it was crowded and loud. YMMV, however. I thought that the food was only average, but again, it was the RW menu.

            I think what makes Abacrombie so great for me is the service. Unobtrusive, so that I can spend time making goo-goo eyes at my man without feeling like the server is watching me. :)

              I second the Abacrombie rec. Cinghiale to me does not qualify as QUIET, unless you're there on a weeknight early.

              1. re: bordeauxfan

                I definitely agree with the Abacrombie rec since it sounds like they are back and as good as before! (yea!) I also think that Corks would fit the bill.
